Domestic cats can develop diabetes, with older and overweight cats being at higher risk. Particularly common in older and overweight dogs, though it can occur in dogs of any age or breed. Equine diabetes, particularly Type 1, is seen in horses and ponies, often related to obesity or other metabolic disorders. Diabetes is occasionally diagnosed in pigs, especially in those bred for meat production. Diabetes can occur in primates, wild rodents, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs.
